A Liebster for Libster! Wordplay is fun!

This is just too cool, innit?

I’m seriously in love with the wordpress blogging community. I’ve found so many great blogs that I creep on the reg, I was beyond excited to hear from Sian, the Professional Dreamer herself, about being nominated for the Liebster award. So grateful that she thought of my blog.  I read her blog daily and love her writing. Everyone should check out her stuff!

Thank you, Sian!


Here are the rules!

Rule #1: Post the award logo on your blog.
Rule #2: Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their site.
Rule #3: Write 11 Random facts about yourself.
Rule #4: Nominate 11 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have less than 200 followers.

Let’s do this!


11 Random facts about me:

1. My mom is slightly obsessed with the British royal family and named me Elizabeth Regina, Queen Elizabeth. (Seriously).

2. Even though I’m of Italian/Irish descent, I frequently get asked if I’m Native Canadian or Middle Eastern.

3. I was 19 when I had my first kiss.

4. I’m slightly obsessed with JFK & RFK.

5. When I was three, I fractured my skull and had to wear a hockey helmet for 6 weeks. This explains a lot.

6.  I have a scar that looks like a piece of bacon on my right thigh. I like to think it attracts men from afar.

7.  I’m the proud Zia (Aunt) to two little girls: Lola and Abby. I love these little ladies more than anything and make no apologies for how obsessed with them I am.

8.  I can’t cook to save my life. I can make eggs and toast – that’s it!

9. I’m terrified of Mother Nature. You know why? Because she’s a testy bitch and you can’t control her.

10.  I share a birthday with Robert Redford- August 18th. This makes us cosmically connected and in case you’re wondering – Yes, Robert Redford is STILL the sexiest man alive.

11. I have to suppress my inner Barbara Walters when I meet people. It’s a problem. I’ll ask so many questions, I’m surprised I haven’t asked anyone what kind of tree they are.


11 Questions For You (Nominees)
